Exercise strengthens core muscles, improves physical appearance, and increases the body's ability to withstand possession by demonic love handles. Cast out unhealthiness with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a two-week CrossFit trial at CrossFit On The Move at either of its two locations in the Grant Park neighborhood or in Alpharetta (a $150 value).
The 3,200-square-foot fitness emporium boasts diverse equipment, certified, motivated trainers, and an inimitable approach to workouts not found at traditional gyms. Steeped in the CrossFit style, the energetic establishment tweaks routines to imitate everyday movements and cranks them up to high intensity for the ultimate experience in muscle building and caloric arson.
Week one is spent learning the fundamentals of CrossFit, with four small classes geared toward imparting movement and technique knowledge before graduating your firmer form to the group sessions. The second week allows you to custom mix a cocktail of WODs, or workouts of the day. The WODs blast boredom with a hodge-podge of leaps, climbs, throws, and squats customized to your abilities, performed on pull-up bars, rowers, kettlebells, and kettle-corn barbells.
Ideal for a wide cross-section of individuals, the program is a distinctive way to get in shape and challenge your bone closet, and, unlike marrying yourself, has no commitment after the trial session. Check the Grant Park and Alpharetta schedules for a dizzying array of class times.
